I don't usually bother with the 1Q contestants, but this is a great example of a Q where the right answer makes perfect sense but where I'd never have got it except by pure luck, because I'd never heard the saying, not to speak of not knowing the logic behind it.

Well, I knew it wouldn't have been about kids, simply because they don't get into the service, & it probably wouldn't be about beer because its not allowed on duty.

I knew the answer but with the options given I was tempted by B—if you lay a clock on a person 6:00 would be near their feet/crotch, so I thought that was a totally plausible usage if not in the air...
